ADMIN: FFXIV PS3 Release date post removed?Follow

Hi All,

This is mainly for the admins.

Yesterday or the day before I saw a post that announced a chinese website had announced a mid August release date for the PS3 version of FFXIV. I posted a reply and doubted the source especially since the link posted went to an invalid url. Today that post is nowhere to be found.... imagine it was taken down but wondering why? Was the poster hoaxing did the link contains any nasties, trojan's, viruses, etc, etc. Or do you just not want posts with unconfirmed release dates?

Although the post was pretty shady and I didn't hold much hope for the August release date being confirmed I was hoping to see either the admin or other forum members verify if this post was a lame BS post or if it had any merit?

Thanks,

Azh

A badly-translated, unconfirmed Chinese post about the release of PS3 version, which no other news source has heard about, and SE has not even announced, does not have any merit. And on top of that, it kind of looked like an RMT site.

I imagine it was taken down due to a combination of every reason you gave. XD

Gamestop had a release date of mid-August back in January whenever I went to purchase a PC copy.

Wow well you heard it first here folks.

Just booked the first week of July off based on your announcement. I wasn't entirely sure you were right but I contacted my local Gamestop as they are the bastion of all gaming knowledge and they confirmed.

People always say that I am so naive and gullible, but I think of it has having an inherent faith that things I read on the web must be true.

The thread is back, sorry guys. There was a mixup with another admin who mistook the OP's copy/pasted abbreviated link (from a thread in the official forums) as a malicious link since it lead nowhere, low post count, chinese site, etc etc etc.

True or untrue, we wouldn't normally remove a thread in that manner. Might lock it if it derailed too badly, though.

Awww you guys really do care :)

TBH I think removing the thread wasn't the greatest of losses. I was simply curious why it was removed.

Thanks for taking the time to explain though it is appreciated.
